This is a painting is a series of paintings I'm doing this month in an effort to get back into portrait painting. I love painting people, and I was the only person available today. This was painted "alla prima".
This is Painting 2 in a series of paintings I'm doing this month. I love painting people and don't have as many choices of folks to paint living out in the country, so I'm focusing on friends and family. This was painted "alla prima".
This was a fun painting. Tom and I moved from the city to a farm 8 years ago and most of our friends from the city think we are in a witness protection program. Tom does look a bit different than he did 8 years ago. I plan to do a series of these this month. This was painted "alla prima" which in Italian means "at first attempt". It's the technique I most
enjoy when painting figurative work. The painting is completed at the
first sitting and paint is applied wet on wet.
